Why International Students Should Consider an Online U.S. College

Fri, 2020-02-07 01:10

Anayat Durrani, US News

“For international students who want to interact with learners from around the world without having to travel around the world, an online degree is a great option,” says Bill Fritz, director of admissions and financial aid at Pennsylvania State University—World Campus, which offers Penn State degrees entirely online. According to the most recent data available from the U.S. Department of Education’s National Center for Education Statistics, 35% of international students took at least one online course in 2015-16, but only about 6% were enrolled in programs that were taught exclusively online.

Are Boot Camps The Higher Ed Disruptors They Claim To Be?

Fri, 2020-02-07 01:05

Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

Per a new report released by the Clayton Christensen Institute, “boot camps have a straightforward and simple value proposition: they are designed to help their graduates find good jobs.” The value of these educational boot camps comes in dollars saved for the learner. Rather than paying a premium to head to a traditional college and meet all sorts of degree requirements which may not even be passingly correlative with their field, learners can invest in these skill-focused boot camps which prep them for a particular job or field they are interested in. Are these boot camps viable over the long run? Are they really a powerful disruption waiting to happen for traditional universities? The answers to these questions remain unclear.

3 Secrets Behind Students’ Motivation To Learn Online

Thu, 2020-02-06 01:10

Scoop Empire

Online learning may seem perfect for students. You may study at home, from your own warm bed, in your favorite pajamas and with a cup of sweet cocoa. You may shift your schedule as you please, you may distribute the tasks evenly or take a day off whenever you want to do it. But still, online learning has one but very important drawback: it’s hard to stay motivated when you are studying online.

We Need a Netflix of Education

Thu, 2020-02-06 01:05

Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

The difference between having access to knowledge and having such knowledge primed for your discovery and consumption is huge. Just because things are available somewhere for someone to learn doesn’t mean that they’re going to be able to sift through the mass of content out there in order to find what they need. We need to be able to curate knowledge in such a way that the sifting is done for learners and the best sources of knowledge are made readily available and organized for their consumption. We need a Netflix of education, a service that streamlines content consumption and utilizes user ratings to augment/expand its base regularly.

Lindsay McKenzie, Inside Higher Ed

Online learning provider Coursera took another step into the undergraduate education market yesterday with the launch of its first bachelor’s degree program at a university in the United States. The University of North Texas, a public research institution in Denton, Tex., will offer its bachelor of applied arts and sciences (B.A.A.S.) program through Coursera beginning in fall 2020.   The bachelor’s degree program is aimed at working adults with some college education and course credits but no degree, said Adam Fein, vice president for digital strategy and innovation at UNT. He hopes the degree will also attract community college students, veterans and students based overseas.

Syed Balkhi, Entrepreneur

Creating a learning culture in the workplace is all about fostering an environment that empoweres people to pursue knowledge. This is important for individual evolution, but it’s also important for the growth of a company as a whole. According to Deloitte, companies with continuous learning cultures are 46 percent more likely to be first to market and 58 percent more prepared to meet future demand. Plus, they also have a 26 percent greater ability to deliver quality products and they experience 37 percent greater employee productivity.

Sharuna Segaren, Study International

Higher education is going through a tough and uncertain time. The industry is continuously being disrupted, with the past decade seeing shifts in nearly every aspect of higher education. Students are asking for their return on investment more than ever, as tuition fees continue to skyrocket. More and more members of the younger generation are looking towards alternatives to “traditional” college pathways such as apprenticeships and part-time study. So what does the future look like for higher education as we head into the 2020s? Here are four predictions according to multiple experts.

Edward J. Maloney and Joshua Kim, Inside Higher Ed

If you read our book, Learning Innovation and the Future of Higher Education, you will discover that we see much to celebrate. The main argument of the book is that higher education is in the midst of an underrecognized and underappreciated renaissance in teaching and learning.  If we are optimistic about the future of learning, what are we worried most about? We have lots of concerns about the next decade in higher education, concerns that could take up another book-length project. Instead, we wanted to share our top four worries about the next decade in higher education.

The Online Learning Minute: What is Backwards Design?

Tue, 2020-02-04 01:10

 

Tyler Kern, Marketscale

Personally, I use backwards design in the majority of my developments because I want to be absolutely sure that the learning objectives are assessed correctly and content is more oriented toward the big picture. Instead of building out a course in a linear fashion, you’ll want to first start with identifying the desired results, or setting up your learning objectives. Next, you’ll begin working on the assessments and determining what evidence would demonstrate that the learner has acquired the necessary knowledge. Last, you’ll build out the content to support those assessments.

Ideally, our incomes should be a fair reflection of the work we do and should enable us to meet our needs and live comfortably. Higher education IT employees’ salaries are competitive even by private-sector standards.2 ECAR developed models of higher education IT salary using data gathered from the IT Workforce Survey, 2018. The interactive salary calculator was built to represent the results of those models and allow users to explore the predicted effects of several factors on salary. So, how does it work?

5 ways to support faculty technology use and preferences

Mon, 2020-02-03 01:09

BY LAURA ASCIONE, eCampus News

Most surveyed faculty don’t use online student success tools, but when they do use them, most find them at least moderately helpful. The research examines four online student success tools, and for each of them, between 27 percent and 39 percent of faculty report not using the tools. When faculty did use the tools, roughly one-third rated them as very or extremely useful. Students say they find success tools more useful than faculty. When it comes to overall technology, faculty satisfaction with their experience has declined slightly, from 71 percent of faculty deeming their experience good or excellent to 64 percent saying the same in 2019.

How Digital Assistants Are Changing Higher Ed

Matthew Lynch, Tech Edvocate

The evolution of artificial intelligence and its impact on virtual assistants is stunning week by week, let alone month by month or year by year. Virtual assistants are becoming less prone to informational parroting and are starting to be developed with conversational capacities far exceeding what’s currently on the market. With enhanced virtual assistants in tow built to specifications, they could begin to have an impact on all sorts of new areas in the higher education process. They could also be used as custom study agents. And even crazier, they could be used as supplemental resources for lectures. In time, they could even become advanced enough to work as a teacher’s assistant normally would – fielding questions, helping grade certain assignments, etc.

Study: Community college access linked to higher earnings, health benefits

Sun, 2020-02-02 01:10

By Natalie Schwartz, Education Dive
Having more community colleges per capita increases the chances that students will complete high school and graduate from college, according to a new working paper.  It is also linked with higher earnings, especially among white and Hispanic people, and a slew of positive health behaviors, including an increase in the frequency of exercise and a lower chance of smoking. The findings come as federal and state policymakers debate whether to lower or eliminate tuition for community colleges in order to boost their enrollment.

Whoever leads in artificial intelligence in 2030 will rule the world until 2100

Indermit Gill, Brookings

So, who’s most likely to succeed during the next decade? My money is on the United States. Productivity growth will pick up again as businesses take advantage of new technologies, consumers will take home big price and quality gains, and policy types will stop fretting about fears of secular stagnation. If enough of the tax burden is shifted from labor to capital, the incomes of middle-income households will keep pace. Expect the United States to call the shots for the rest of the century.
